An Ohio woman says two intruders robbed her and then set fire to her home as she tried to wake her four sleeping children.

She said that when she left the men, they poured gasoline inside the home and ignited it. The woman and her children escaped safely as firefighters arrived to extinguish the blaze.
There was no immediate word on any suspects.
